Philadelphia Science Festival

University of the Sciences is a core collaborator of the Philadelphia Science Festival, an innovative, nine-day celebration that explores the many ways that science and technology touch our everyday lives. A citywide collaboration, the Festival unites more than 200 of the region’s most influential institutions, museums and cultural centers in a common goal.

The Festival’s signature Science Carnival, which in previous years has attracted more than 30,000 attendees to the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, takes place at the vibrant Great Plaza at Penn’s Landing.

USciences faculty, staff, and students take part in some of the 100-plus events available throughout the Festival. Presented by The Dow Chemical Company and organized by The Franklin Institute, the Festival brings science to restaurants, parks, breweries, libraries, museums and other neighborhood places!
